"Recipe that's a combination of some useful ideas I got from a post in the Aus/NZ forums along with a few ideas from recipes found on the web. If you don't have access to Vegemite try black sauce (thanks mummamills for that and more!)."

Ready In:





  • 500 g lamb liver
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 14 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 200 g bacon (about 4 rashers)
  • 2 medium onions, diced
  • 1 12 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon vegemite
  • 1 tablespoon cornflour



  • Place lamb liver in a small bowl, sprinkle with sea salt, cover with water and refrigerate for a few hours.
  • Peel skin off lamb's fry and remove any other pieces of tissue, slice and lightly coat with the flour. I normally like to cut any long strips in half again so they're bite size.
  • Remove excess fat and rind from the bacon and chop coarsely. Leave a bit of streaky fat on the bacon, it adds to the flavour.
  • Melt butter in a frypan, add bacon and onion and fry around 8-10 minutes over medium to high temperature until onion is soft and bacon is fairly well cooked but not crisp.
  • Add lamb's fry and lightly fry a few minutes turning often to brown evenly, you don't need to cook it through at this stage.
  • Blend water, vegemite and cornflour and add to the pan and mix through well.
  • Bring to a gentle boil, reduce temperature to a simmer and continue to cook for 20 minutes stirring every 5 minutes or so. It may take a little more time but you want a fairly thick gravy runs a little slowly off a spoon.
  • Serve with mashed potatoes or it's also good re-heated and served on toast for breakfast.

  3. This is the first time I've cooked lambs fry, and haven't eaten it since my dad died some years ago. Absolute winner! This is just sensational and so easy to cook - I will definitely be introducing my kids to this. Thanks Peter!


  4. I didn't expect this to taste so good given the basic ingredients but it was very flavoursome with great texture and consistency. A keeper for me

  1. To help shake away the winter blues, I added spring onion to the mash and for decadence, some crispy bacon slices as a topping......yes, I know, the topping was an overkill, but wow, did I win some brownie points lastnight!!


  2. I used non stick spray in the frying pan. Dried liver pieces on paper towel before coating in plain flour. I left out butter. Cooked the liver for 5 mins on low heat prior to adding onion in rings on top with bacon pieces. Covered for three minutes and then stirred/turned gently half cooking the liver. Adding small amounts of water to keep moist. I sprinkled some all purpose seasoning. All up about two cups of water used. I thickened by using gravy powder towards the end. Simmered covered for 30 minutes with regular attention to prevent sticking to the pan. After gravy was thickened enough served. My mums budget recipe from the 60's.

<p>I live close Hobart in Tasmania, a wonderful part of Australia but a little chilly in winter so be sure to book your holiday for summer! I'm self-employed in the embedded electronics area and being at home most of the day gives me plenty of time to prepare those recipes with long preparation and cooking times. As most of my clients are either interstate or overseas I get to occasionally catch up with them and enjoy their local restaurants, always nice to have someone else paying the bills! <br /> <br />As well as food I'm partial to the odd beer &amp; wine, so often like to go to a local pub and catch some local bands. No need for an alarm clock in the morning, my cat Molly likes her breakfast at 8:00AM sharp and makes an effective alarm! Lately I've been starting to get into some digital photography so you might be seeing a few additional recipe shots on Zaar... <br /> <br /><a href=> <br /><img src= alt= /></a></p>
